Flexitricity announces Scottish partners for Quickturn project

Edinburgh-based demand response firm Flexitricity announced that it has partnered with eight organisations on 2 July to trial a solution which it said has potential to revolutionise the demand-side response (DSR) industry.

The Quickturn project, funded by BEIS, aims to provide an opportunity for smaller commercial energy users across the UK to benefit from DSR.

Partners include the likes of Glasgow City Council and Scottish Water Horizons – a commercial subsidiary owned by Scottish Water that plays a key role in supporting the development of Scotland’s sustainable and circular economy by making the most of the utility’s assets.

Flexitricity said it will use its expertise in dispatching flexible energy-consuming assets to help National Grid balance the grid.

The trials are set to commence imminently and the project findings are expected to be shared in 2020.
